A comprehensive account of ore-forming processes, revised and updated

The revised second edition of Introduction to Ore-Forming Processes offers a guide to the multiplicity of geological processes that result in the formation of mineral deposits. The second edition has been updated to reflect the most recent developments in the study of metallogeny and earth system science.

This second edition contains new information about global tectonic processes and crustal evolution that continues to influence the practice of economic geology and maintains the supply of natural resources in a responsible and sustainable way. The replenishment of depleted natural resources is becoming more difficult and environmentally challenging. There is also a change in the demand for mineral commodities and the concern around the non-sustainable supply of 'critical metals' is now an important consideration for planners of the future. The book puts the focus on the responsible custodianship of natural resources and the continuing need for all earth scientists to understand metallogeny and the resource cycle. This new edition:

Provides an updated guide to the processes involved in the formation of mineral deposits

Offers an overview of magmatic, hydrothermal and sedimentary ore-forming processes

Covers the entire range of mineral deposit types, including the fossil fuels and supergene ores

Relates metallogeny to global tectonics by examining the distribution of mineral deposits in space and time

Contains examples of world famous ore deposits that help to provide context and relevance to the process-oriented descriptions of ore genesis

Written for students and professionals alike, Introduction to Ore-Forming Processes offers a revised second edition that puts the focus on the fact that mineral deposits are simply one of the many natural wonders of geological process and evolution.
